 What's your choice of music playback? ; Vinyl vs ?

Post #1 - 26 Mar 2018, 21:27

To me vinyl is the purest way of listening to music. I expected dannynomates to carry on this discussion but he clearly hasn't the knowledge. Maybe a poll can sort this out once and for all, without all the unnecessary waffle.

What do you listen to your music through, basically?

Obviously 2nd generation Maxell UDS-II 90 cassette on Nakamichi 680ZX cassette deck, Dolby B on, azimuth & speed adjusted (pitched!) for individual recording, heads cleaned & demagnetized -> Sony Linear PCM Recorder PCM-M10 (LPCM 44.10kHz/16bit WAV files) -> computer -> Audacity [normalisation to remove DC offset, channel/phase alignment, fades, manual one-at-a-time glitch, bump, pop, click, dropout & dullspot repairs, volume adjustments, -.7 pitch (speed) fix with single pass after spectral analysis & with pitchpipe verification, NO equalisation] -> CD Wave (track splits) -> flacs :rolleyes:

Vinyl. And preferably original pressings. It doesn't matter what they try and do to tracks afterwards they rarely sound as good.

CD. Ease of skipping the inevitable crap track, a fucking nightmare with vinyl or cassette, plus they make great coasters.

No skips, no pops unless you buy a Voiceprint Fall reissue. :bang:

MP3.

I'm definitely right as I have thousands of CDs and have converted them to MP3 on my hard drive. I can't tell the difference in sound quality personally, but my daughter says anything on my hard drive is second to none and she should know.

I'm right on this and everybody else is wrong. All digital formats sound better than vinyl.

No, I'm right and you're wrong, but you're not worth arguing with.

I download all my music from Youtube, convert to MP3 and play it through my i-phone that Emma (nee Royd) got me for a tenner off Dodgy Dave from Droylesden. :)

With the right equipment and software, the best sounding screams of terrified Proddy cunts you can hear is via high quality FLAC files, or streaming 24 bit. Trust me on this.

I only have one record, so the answer is vinyl.

It's a scratchy old Best of the Beach Boys LP, pressed in the sixties which I paid £30 for from Oxfam. Despite a lot of surface noise, Surfin' USA sounds fucking fantastic to my ears. :wub:
